Colin Farrell Says He's Given Up Booze, We Say "Colin Who?"

| Filed under: Colin Farrell


Colin Farrell is saying that after years as Hollywood's bad boy, he's ready to live the quiet life.

Which is Hollywood speak for "No one cares about me anymore."

He says that at the tender age of 22, he came into the Hollywood rock star lifestyle with guns blazing, drinking and womanizing and swearing and fighting. But he admits that the "the trip got a little bit out of hand for me, so I just stepped back."

"All the madness and chaos, and all the people around me got so tiring after a while that I had to find another way."

That other way is a "blissfully quiet" life free of alcohol. And while the actor admits he isn't "monk-like," he has a new appreciation for "solitude that would have terrified me years ago."

His hair is grown out for a recent role in a mermaid movie called Ondine. The film has just wrapped.

Great, now cut that nasty hair off.

Right now he has a movie out called Pride and Glory, which recounts the personal and professional of New York police officers through three generations. He and co-star Ed Norton researched for the role by actually working with real police officers, whom they found "generous with their experiences."

So the Irish wild child has finally settled down, saying, "Five years ago, if I’d looked at the life I live now I would have said, 'God, he’s so boring!'"

He must have read our minds!

    Funny America says "Mario Who?" so you attempt to ride the Paris Hilton fame with the lame name rip off.

    Re: Not All The Same – I would like to applaud you. It's amazing the idiotic things people write on here, and the nastiest including immature name calling, that ensues when you don't agree with them.
    I would also like to comment on SweetPat, who clearly has ADD if he/she thinks the posts on here are long.
    There are way too many people on this site who have nothing positive going on in their lives and have to lash out at others. They also spend way too much time commenting on every story that comes up, and cheer when they are "first." Seriously, if you have nothing better to do, find something, go outside, find some friends, get a job, go to school, or hey, actually do the work you are supposed to be doing at your job.
    I am happy though that it seems although that the Obama bashing and McCain/Palin lovefests have ended. Thank God.

    Re: myowneviltwin – Seriosly, go fuck yourself. Speaking for myself I have a great job and lucky for me I can work and be on here at the same time. And I make good money to boot.

    hey, good for him for settling down now that he is a father with a son who needs his extra attention. Geez, Perez, you can be so harsh sometimes.

  24. 24

    He has been sober for a while now. This isn't exactly news. He interviewed a year or two ago that he gave it all up when his son had some health issues. Not sure if he still has issues or not.
    Great job Perez!! I love hearing news that is over TWO YEARS OLD! Woo!

    I just want anyone who is reading this to know that not all people in the U.S. are as malicious, petty, unbalanced and superficial as most of the people who work for PerezHilton.com or who post comments on their site. I read some of the nasty blogs and comments about celebrities and it never fails to amaze me the hateful and disgusting comments people make. I just want everyone to know that most of the U.S. is not this angry and unbalanced. It's just a small fraction of people here who are most likely high on drugs when they write this stuff. I don't know how else to explain it because happy and sane people do not think, feel, talk or write the way many of these insane extremists do on this and many other tabloid sites.

    These tabloid sites are a breeding ground for extremism because it give these kind of people an outlet to project their own self-hatred, paranoia and lack of self respect toward innocent celebs. Tabloid sites are a meeting place for like-minded mentally unbalanced people who have nothing better to do than tear into celebrities they don't know. It's very sad that anyone out there is like this. Just realize most of us are not so please don't judge us by the angry vocal minority. Most Americans are nothing like them and we are all amazed that anyone is. Sad.

    I hate colin!! He is ugly ugly ugly!!!

  32. 32

    goddamn he looks sexy, i need to be done by him

  33. 33

    To get away from alcohol is to move towards peace of mind, and that's a step toward the spiritual.

  34. 34

    You need to make up your mind Perez

    How many times do you go on about Amy Winehouse and getting herself sorted before she kills herself? Then you berate Colm Farrell for doing that very thing. He had an alcohol and drug problem, but he had the BALLS to do something about it.

    At least be fooking consistent !

  35. 35

    your on this guys case cause he turns you on ya wanker

  36. 36

    fuck off, i'm glad colin farrell is clean. i would rather someone be alive, CLEAN and boring than "exciting", doped up, and dead.

  41. 41

    first of hi hair is way too long and he looks exactly like Jason Wheler–douche from the hills–

  42. 42

    so sober people are boring? well maybe to someone who makes their living making fun of how tragic and dysfunctional some people are. good for Colin for getting healthy and being honest about it. instead of some coke marks on his face, you write boring across his chest. I guess some people aren't as fabulous as you I guess.

  43. 43

    You would prefer he keeps the addictions paths???????

    So you could have more BULLSHIT to write in here …¿?¿? Why don t you talk about IN BRUGES … you only talk dirty things about WORKERS …. and good things about whores and other people who probably PAYS YOU TO GET THOSE GOOD CRITICS …

    Go ahead and keep throwing flowers to kate perry or "the bitch of the day"

  44. 44

    he's always been utterly disgusting to me, i never understood what everyone saw in him, why won't he thin out those damn eyebrows, what the hell is wrong with him, he can't think that's sexy

  45. 45

    Re: jaimecat – I totally agree - he was more fun and interesting when he was drunk/high all the time. Now the only way he can make it onto one of these websites is by being boring??? WTF??? And what the hell is he wearing in this photo? An ascot? I thought those went out with witch burning . . .

  46. 46

    It really saddens me to know you don't like Colin Farrell!! I think he's sex on legs, tbh!!! You're just jealous of his bad boy looks, lol

  47. 47

    Perez, that Mirror article is from June 2008. Everyone knows he's settling down already.
